Introducing a powerful new novelist whose evocation of an unforgettable African family is testament to the transformative power of unconditional love. Kwaku Sai is dead. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, he succumbs suddenly at dawn outside the home he shares in Ghana with his second wife. The news of Kwaku’s death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Ghana Must Go is their story. Electric, exhilarating, beautifully crafted, Ghana Must Go follows the Sais’ journey, moving with great elegance through time and place to share the truths hidden and lies told, the crimes committed in the name of love. In the wake of Kwaku’s death, the family gathers in Ghana at the home of their mother, Fola. The eldest son and his new wife; the mysterious, beautiful twins; their baby sister, now a young woman—all come together for the first time in years, each carrying secrets of his own. What is revealed in their reunion is the story of how they came apart.
